‘And The Soft Wind Blows’ ……………….. by Lance Umenhofer

Introduction: Tuesday

“How was your day?” Timmy asked.

“Shut up,” said Mandy, her words dropping like boulders on Timmy’s head, shattering to pieces on the floor.

“That bad?” He wanted to run over to her quickly and abrasively grab her arms, telling her it would all be O.K., that suffering  did not exist, pulling her toward him in a grand manner; their embrace matching that of blackandwhiteromances, but life was not like that; reality was never black and white.

NB. Some sections of the book are written ‘scriptio continua’, that is without spaces or other marks between words or sentences and are an integral and intentional element of the story.

Poetic Fiction isn’t a genre that I tend to read on a regular basis, unless as a specific review request.  However the premise for ‘And The Soft Wind Blows, offered such a unique and interesting reading experience, that I was just too intrigued to pass up the review offer from its author, Lance Umenhofer.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
